 Update me on new releases by Meyer

Krzysztof Meyer (b8/11/1943)

Krzysztof Meyer was born on 11 August 1943 in Kraków. From the age of five he studied the piano and, from 1954, theory and composition with Stanisław Wiechowicz. After graduating from the Chopin State Secondary School of Music in Kraków Meyer continued his studies at the College of Music there, graduating with distinction in composition in 1965, in the class of Krzysztof Penderecki and in theory a year later. In 1964, 1966, and 1968 he was a student of Nadia Boulanger in France. During the years 1965–1967 Meyer appeared as pianist with the group MW2 Ensemble, giving concerts of contemporary music both at home and in most European countries. He also played his solo and chamber music compositions. From 1966 to 1987 he taught at the State College of Music (now Academy of Music) in Kraków, holding the chair of the Department of Music Theory from 1975 to 1987. Since 1987 he has been professor of composition at the Hochschule für Musik in Cologne and is a frequent lecturer on the subject of contemporary music in many countries, including Russia, Germany, Austria, Brazil and Japan. Between the years 1985 and 1989 he held the office of President of the Polish Composers’ Union.
